image for Cereal Manufacturer Rapped for Promoting Prostitution
Sex for Breakfast?

A famous cereal manufacturer that makes a popular brand of multigrain hooped breakfast cereal (but not the ones you're thinking of, a completely different manufacturer) has been lambasted by advertising watchdogs for promoting prostitution on the back of every packet of cereal.

The phrase "Give those 'o's a go" is splashed in large letters across the back of the pack in a lurid, day-glo font.

"This his 'orrible," said Charles O'Flannigan of the advertising watchdog, Ad-Off. "Many people myself hincluded, hare hoff the Cockney persuasion hand speak Hestuary Henglish. Part hof this wonderful dialect his the dropping hof aitches hand putting them hinfront hof words beginning with ha vowel. Hi demand that they remove this haffrontry from my morning breakfast routine."

The manufacturer in question has considered the request from O'Flannigan and given a terse response.

"Mr O'Flannigan is a dimwit of the highest order, please do not pander to him. We are NOT promoting prostitution. Those women were in our hotel room of their own accord, and any money they received was to help them out with food and drink, and no services were offered or requested."
